Instagramability was taken from the number of photos uploaded using each location’s relevant hashtag on Instagram, the number of attractions, green spaces, and beauty spots were taken from Trip Advisor, and heritage spots in the county and number of mountains and hills in the county were both taken from Wikipedia.
Any towns or villages where we were unable to find complete data were removed before ranking.
We then use a weighted ranking formula to give each location an overall score, where each factor was given equal importance.
